Meet our Therapists

Prior to choosing a sex therapist, couples counselor, marriage therapist or family therapist to work with, we strongly encourage you to explore our enormous collection of self-help articles.  These self-help articles will give you specific ideas for how to move forward in the privacy of your own home, at your own pace.  Additionally the self help articles will provide you with personalized information about how we, as individual therapists and as a therapy center conceptualize sexual, emotional and spiritual health.
